Hey guys I've got a sapphire 6950 2gb with unlocked 6970 shaders and I was using Sapphire Trixx to overclock my card, or so I thought. I was using a very dated version of Sapphire Trixx, and soon noticed that it was underclocking my card and it never actually kept my overclock settings after a while. I noticed this after playing bf3 and watched as instead of getting 60-70 frames on high I was getting 40-50. Anyway, I updated sapphire trixx and am now completely lost. It gives me settings for power board Li (which I have no idea what that is) and VDDC which I am guessing is the voltage. Now anytime I even increase the memory clock or gpu clock by a little, I get a blue screen and my computer shuts down. This is after trying to achieve an overclock of 880/1375 with 1.15 volts, which had worked fine before all my other problems started. So I tried again, and simply raised the two levels to 820/1275, and my computer got a blue screen again. Do I have to do something with the VDDC and Power Board Li which I don't know about? Should I not even overclock my card at all because the gains are minimal? If someone could help me out with this process that would be great. Thanks.

try re installing TRIXX, make sure it's the latest
I reinstalled and made sure it was the latest version. I tried to play bf3 after OC to 875 and 1325 and I got blue screen right after opening bf3. I may just forget about OC, I don't want to break my card
I'm having this EXACT SAME ISSUE!? PRevious OS I had unlock and overclocked with no problem. A few OS rebuilds latter I get a crash the second I apply my changes in TRIXX!!! ANY IDEAS?
